Notes: Great room. Very quiet. No issues with engine vibrations. Everything was in tip top shape, of course, since the ship is so new.
The room is one door away from the entrance to the aft stair/elevator landing so it has privacy from the landing (8662 opens directly to that entrance). Even so, there is no mid-ship detective agency stop in the deck 8 aft landing, hence no continuous crowd/noise from that game.
8660 has a connecting door to 8658, though not in use for our booking since we didn't know our neighbors. No noise issues with that connecting door.
This location has really great access to Cabanas for that morning breakfast run to bring back to the verandah. Very close to Palo, Oceaneer's Lab/Club, Goofy's Sports Deck & mini-golf, the Arr-cade, Animator's Palate, and the adult district (The Tube, etc).
Fantastic view of Castaway Cay in port!
A little hike to the mid-ship stairs/elevator (which are more forward than the middle of the ship). Also a hike to all the Forward locales - the theaters, the spa, Cove Cafe, and the adult pool. But these are not really a problem unless you are in a hurry to get between these areas (like to go back for something you forgot in your room).
We would book this room again!
